Other planned events: Notice of 1080 aerial and ground baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing aerial and ground baiting program in Mount Kaputar National Park from Monday 8 April 2024 to Monday 30 September 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock. Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location.

Domestic pets are not permitted on NPWS estate. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

For further information please contact the NPWS Barwon Area office on (02) 6792 7300.
